191-197 Toole in 2023, post 5 of 5: South corner

This is the last of five posts showing the five-sided building wedged into one of five corners at the intersection of 6th Avenue, Alameda Street, and Toole Avenue downtown. (Here's a closeup on Google Maps.)

There've been so many murals on these walls that we made a special page for the building that shows blog posts from over the years:

The last time I showed photos of this building was the fourth in this series: 191-197 Toole in 2023, post 4 of 5: East side.

I have no idea why the people who built this weirdly-shaped building made it even weirder by making what would have been a sharp corner on the south end into a flat corner only a few feet wide. It's at the left edge of this photo — most of which shows the east side of the building:
Of course, like the rest of this mural-covered building, this little space has to have a mural:
That second photo is from February 17, 2023. I took the first photo — the overview — on December 16, 2023.

That's the last post from this mural magnet — for now.
